This formula uses 6 Variables
Variables Used
Polytropic Index for Compression- Polytropic Index for Compression is that defined via a polytropic equation of state of the form P∝ρ1+1/n, where P is pressure, ρ is density, and n is the polytropic index.
Mass for Compression - Mass for Compression, in physics, quantitative measure of inertia, a fundamental property of all matter. (Measured in Kilogram)
Specific gas constant - The specific gas constant of a gas or a mixture of gases is given by the molar gas constant divided by the molar mass of the gas or mixture. (Measured in Joule per Kilogram per K)
Input temperature - Input temperature is the degree or intensity of heat present in the system. (Measured in Kelvin)
Pressure 2 - Pressure 2 is the pressure at give point 2. (Measured in Bar)
Pressure 1 - Pressure 1 is the pressure at give point 1. (Measured in Bar)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Polytropic Index for Compression: 1.2 --> No Conversion Required
Mass for Compression: 1 Kilogram --> 1 Kilogram No Conversion Required
Specific gas constant: 286.7056 Joule per Kilogram per K --> 286.7056 Joule per Kilogram per K No Conversion Required
Input temperature: 200 Kelvin --> 200 Kelvin No Conversion Required
Pressure 2: 5 Bar --> 500000 Pascal (Check conversion here)
Pressure 1: 1 Bar --> 100000 Pascal (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Wpoly = (((n)/(n-1))*(m*R*Tin)*((P2/P1)^((n-1)/(n))-1)) --> (((1.2)/(1.2-1))*(1*286.7056*200)*((500000/100000)^((1.2-1)/(1.2))-1))
Evaluating ... ...
